An employee at Central Wyoming College has tested positive for COVID-19. The announcement was made to all staff August 27.
“I have been informed today of a positive case of COVID-19 involving an employee who works on the main campus of CWC,” said Kathy Wells, incident commander for the emergency response team at CWC.
Fortunately, the employee took all necessary precautions to eliminate any spread of the virus to the campus community. The employee was not in contact or on campus at the time or after confirmation of a positive result.
The Fremont County Public Health Department was notified and no CWC employees or students were identified as close contacts in contact tracing. Close contact refers to an individual who was within six feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes, regardless of whether masks were in use.
“This employee did all the correct things, for which we are very appreciative,” said Lori Ridgway, marketing director. “We have been communicating our plan to reopen the college relentlessly and this proves that our employees are taking this seriously and following the guidelines that are in place.”
